Tropical Storm Elsa is carving a destructive and soaking path up the East Coast after killing at least one person in Florida and spinning up a tornado at a Georgia Navy base that flipped recreational vehicles and threw one of them into a lake. One person was killed in Jacksonville, Florida, when a tree fell onto a car. Elsa was expected to pass near the eastern mid-Atlantic states by Thursday night and move near or over the northeastern United States on Friday. Tropical storm warnings were in effect along the coast from North Carolina to Connecticut.
